Waht is Classical Civilisation?

Students do not need experience of either the Latin or Ancient Greek languages, as all of the texts are studied in English translation; all a student needs is an interest in mythology, the ancient world and its cultures. Classical Civilisation involves interesting discussions that are directly relevant to today's world with topics covered including: women in the ancient world; religious beliefs; ancient acts of intolerance.

GCSE Classical Civilisation Tuition

GCSE Classical Civilisation provides students with a broad, coherent and rewarding study of the literature and culture of the classical (Greco-Roman) world drawn from the time period 3000 BCE to 500 CE. GCSE students study elements of literature and the visual and material culture of Greece and Rome and develop an understanding of their social, historical and cultural contexts.

The major topics studied at GCSE level are: (1) Myth and Religion - the study of the roles, symbols and depictions of the Greek and Roman gods, their festivals and temples, mythology and ancient beliefs in the Underworld. (2) The Homeric World - focusing on Homer's Odyssey, including an analysis of the characters and plots, as well as the themes of fate, revenge and justice. It also includes a study of real life in the Mycenean age, through various sites and artefacts.

A-Level Classical Civilisation Tuition

A-Level Classical Civilisation includes the study of myths, literature, history, politics, art and architecture, philosophy and the way people lived in Greece and Rome. The A-Level topics are: (1) Society: relationships within the household, between the household and the wider community and between different communities. (2) Myths: heroes, villains, monsters. (3) Religion: portrayal of gods, attitudes to gods and the role of religion. (4) Values: concepts of heroism, honour, duty, virtue, justice and the good life. (5) Politics and leadership: bases of power, attitudes to those in power, accountability of those in power, processes for making decisions and resolving disputes, plus attitudes to war and peace. (6) History: a study of specific periods of Greek and Roman History.

If you are looking to apply to university, Classical Civilisation can be extremely useful. You not only acquire specific Classical knowledge, but also important transferable skills such as analysing sources and developing independent, critical and evaluative approaches. You learn to formulate and support an argument and develop a valuable understanding of cultures very different to your own.

Tuition with a qualified Classical Civilisation teacher at your home in Buckingham costs from £46.00 ph. Online tuition with a qualified Classical Civilisation teacher costs from £40.00 ph. Create your own small tuition group and Classical Civilisation tuition costs from £17.50 ph.

Location
Home Tuition: Involves a Classical Civilisation tutor coming to your home in Buckingham to provide one-on-one instruction. This offers convenience as you don't need to travel. Online Tuition: This can take place anywhere with an internet connection. Small Group Tuition: Typically with between 2 to 4 children, and often occurs in a physical location such as your home, though it can also be online.

Individual Attention
Home Tuition: Offers the highest level of individual attention, as the Classical Civilisation tutor focuses solely on one student. Online Tuition: Still allows for one-to-one attention, but it may be slightly less personal than home tuition due to potential distractions. Small Group Tuition: Offers less individual attention as the Classical Civilisation tutor must divide their time and attention among multiple students.

Cost
Home Tuition: This tends to be more expensive because it involves one-on-one teaching, and the Classical Civilisation tutor is required to travel to your home, in Buckingham. Online Tuition: Often more affordable than home tuition as your Classical Civilisation tutor does not need to travel but may still cost more than small group tuition. Small Group Tuition: Generally, this is the most cost-effective option, as the costs are shared among several families.

Flexibility
Home Tuition: Offers flexibility in terms of scheduling and curriculum, as your Classical Civilisation tutor will only be working with your child. Online Tuition: Provides flexibility in terms of location and may offer a wider selection of Classical Civilisation tutors. Small Group Tuition: Lessons will be more difficult to schedule as lesson times will have to fit in with other families.

Interaction
Home Tuition: Offers in-person interaction, which can be beneficial for students who learn better through face-to-face communication. Online Tuition: Provides interaction through video conferencing tools and chat, which can be engaging but may not suit everyone's learning style. Small Group Tuition: Allows for peer interaction, which can benefit collaborative learning and discussions.

The choice between home, online, or small group Classical Civilisation tuition in Buckingham depends on your preferences, budget, and the student's specific educational needs. Each option has advantages and disadvantages, so it's essential to consider these factors when deciding.
